The issue about the vaccine is quite complex, especially in children, who are considered fragile individuals in every way. Even talking about infants as such can be complex. From ethics and morals, to the physiological part it varies with respect to an adult.
However, the article is not focused on this type of subject; In this we will talk about the importance of a vaccine for children and for the rest of the people around them.
A little about the vaccine
His curious name we owe to Edward Jenner an English rural doctor who, in 1796, carried out an immunization experiment.
- This was achieved thanks to the observation about the smallpox of the man and the smallpox of the cows (hence the denomination).
- The latter was responsible for protecting the human being from the first . As a result of 20 years, he obtained the creation of the famous vaccine.
Years later, Louis Pasteur , showed a great advance in the world of the vaccine and developed his own models against the cholera of birds and anthrax (also known as anthrax).
It can be said that, the discovery of human immunization through the vaccine is one of the greatest medical and scientific advances in history.
How important is the vaccine?
Since time immemorial, the human being has been affected by a host of foreign bodies, and among them, infectious bacteria . This event has influenced to counteract such effects. Thanks to this and other events, the man got immunization from the emergence of the vaccine .
The revolution of this has been so memorable that, at present, it is still used throughout the entire globe. Therefore and at a general level, the vaccine is important because of the protective role played by human beings with access to it.
The vaccine starts with children
Of course, all human beings, regardless of age, need certain doses of medications to protect themselves from infections. However, this important process begins with the children.
This relevance is due to the immune system of infants, which is in development and can be more easily affected by foreign agents. Even the vaccine is responsible for counteracting various quite dangerous childhood diseases.
Although there are different movements opposing the vaccine, the reality of this points to something else to which they expose.
- In the first place, it goes directly to the organism (one person).
- By vaccinating more and more individuals, the chances of infection are diminished .
- In this way, when we agree to receive it, we are contributing indirectly to the few unvaccinated people.
The opposite occurs when the group without the dose that stimulates the immune system against diseases does not receive the vaccine: in this case, the disease spreads rapidly .
Side effects of the vaccine
Yes, as mentioned previously, some individuals usually speak out against the vaccine. Many of these do so with little logical arguments, and others, with a little more foundation.
The first is “I have not been vaccinated and nothing has happened to me”; However, it loses all seriousness and truthfulness, taking into account the absence of scientific evidence . Others are a bit more elaborate, and rely on bumps, pain, fever and others caused by the supply of this medicine.
However, it should be remembered that all medications usually cause certain side effects , which may leave invalid arguments for not using it. In the case of the vaccine, its negative effects are usually temporary and little incident.
Is the vaccine safe?
The negative or side effects caused by the application of the vaccine cause people to question that safety. However, this is, in addition to being relevant to humans, very stable.
On the other hand, it also depends on where it is usually applied. For example, the ideal is to go to known and trusted health centers , as well as turn to a trusted doctor .
In addition, if we have any doubts, we must ask, fluently and without shame or sorrow. It is always better to be sure. Of course, we should not avoid the vaccine, as it can save our lives and those around us.
